Claire Barclay is more than a little shaken when she receives news that her beloved stepfather has had a stroke. She and her husband, Art, fly back to Scotland to care for him during the summer. Leo is no longer able to live on his own, but he's absolutely determined to stay in his beloved old house, which presents a problem.

Art comes up with an idea that might make sense for them all. They'll purchase the property from Leo, turn the place into a conference center, and build Leo a cottage on the property. Problem solved. But the situation is more complicated than it seems. Jonas Fairweather has been Leo's caretaker and trusted confidante, and it appears that he has schemed to tear Leo's house down and develop the property, presumably for financial gain. But the Baclays are beginning to think that there's something far more sinister going on...

I too chose this book because of the name (love all of Rosamunde Pilcher books) but though the style was somewhat the same, I don’t care for the technique of going back and forwards in time. I prefer a story simply told in a straightforward manner as R.P. told them.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a good plot & interesting characters. I chose this author because he is the son of Rosamunde Pilcher, author of The Shell Seekers & other wonderful books. Robin writes just like his dear Mum.
